Wiring Up the Coin Door

So I got a good deal on a coin door for my MAME cocktail cabinet. I'm waiting for some other parts to wire up control, but I grew impatient tonight and wanted to do something. So, I started wiring up the lights behind the coin.

Here's a shot of it installed from the front.

Here are shots of it installed from the inside. I have a couple of red Solo cups below to catch the coins.

I wired up the 12v lights to a female molex connector's 12v lines. That way, the coin doors light up when the machine starts up.

I can't wait for my USB controller to show up so I can wire up the coins to trigger a credit insert!
